About Curlew Cottage

Curlew Cottage sleeps two guests and is a Grade II listed 18th Century former leadminers' cottage set in the very heart of Swaledale within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Perfect for couples, the cottage sits above a small hamlet in an elevated position and is just four miles from the picturesque village of Reeth with its village green, tea rooms, craft shops and local inns.

Commanding breathtaking scenery, Swaledale is one of the northernmost dales and much loved for its beautiful landscape dotted with historic stone barns and flower meadows. Its gentle slopes and miles of drystone walls only add to its charm.

The cottage has been furnished and equipped to a high standard to provide a cosy retreat for relaxing and a great base from which to explore the area. Guests can enjoy fantastic walks and hikes directly from the front door and the Yorkshire Dales offers plenty of other activities for outdoor enthusiasts including cycling, climbing and horse riding.

There are plenty of attractions and delightful market towns to visit in the Dales including Richmond with its impressive castle; Leyburn which is home to Middleham castle and offers a good range of traditional shops and Hawes where you can visit the Dales Countryside Museum. Locally you also have Askrigg which is famed for its connection with the popular television series “All Creatures Great and Small”; Aysgarth Falls with its pretty wooded walks and superb views; Hardraw Force, England’s highest waterfall; Bolton Castle and the Bowes museum in Barnard Castle.

For those happy to venture a little further afield you have the cities of York and Durham with many attractions, along with Harrogate, Hadrian's Wall, the North Yorkshire Moors and the Lake District - all easily accessible for a day trip.
